Ortega Park


 

PARK REVIEW

Ortega Park is another one of my favorite parks to visit.  There is a lot of playground equipment, they have a fun water feature, and it's just a very pretty place to visit.  The park is landscaped beautifully and is a good size (18 acres).  There are usually other people at the park when I visit, but it's never overcrowded.  We frequent this park a lot.


PARK HOURS – 6 A.M. to 9 P.M.

WATER FEATURE & ROCK WALL

  • Water Feature
    • I think that the most fun part about this park is it's cute water feature.  There is a giant flower that squirts water from above.  There are also several poles surrounding the flower that squirt too.  It's a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon. 
  • Rock Wall
    • They have a large rock wall that the older kids will enjoy climbing on.  
  • Swing Sets
    • 4 Baby Swings
    • 4 Big Kid Swings

TODDLER PLAYGROUND

  • This playground is for children ages 2-5 years.  I like this playground set because it is completely fenced.  When I bring a couple of little ones, I feel secure that they can't wander off by themselves.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PICNIC AREA

This is a great park for picnicking, and it is often very crowded on the weekends.  Definitely plan ahead if you want to have a party at this park.  There is a large area of picnic tables next to the playground.  There are large BBQ pits with sinks too.  This area is under the trees.


WALKING PATHS

I enjoy walking around this park with my dog.  It's a nice sized park, and it is very pretty.  The surrounding neighborhood is also nice to walk around.


MAINTENANCE

The park is very clean


RESTROOMS

The restrooms are usually in good condition.  Since they're next to the water feature, the floors may be wet due to the kids going in and out. There is a baby changing station.

There is a water fountain on a pole at the playground.  There is also a water fountain on the community center building next to the restrooms.
